Thanks for the report! At the moment I don't have any leads, but a few more
pieces of info might give a clue.

Is that installed via ports / pkg, or compiled from the official 1.0.39

Also, what does your tarsnap cache directory look like?  As per
I would expect to see 3 or 4 files (cseq, directory, lockf; and probably cache
as well).

Thanks for the quick response!

Tarsnap is compiled from /usr/ports/sysutils/tarsnap

My tarsnap cache directory looks like:

[root@firewall /var/cache]# ls -laR tarsnap/
total 49160
drwx------  2 root  wheel       512 Aug 14  2019 .
drwxr-xr-x  7 root  wheel       512 Aug 12  2019 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  26189016 Aug 14  2019 cache
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 64 Aug 14 2019 cseq -> e13093bd485c4a9163a1c935e6af5ef4bb14a8bd4b29ce1a22220173b0c518f6

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel         0 Nov 24  2017 lockf
[root@firewall /var/cache]#

Tarsnap runs as "root" via cron although it still fails if I run in manually.

Is there any debugging that can be turned on to get a better idea of whats going on?

Thanks again,
